I know you love Backman but frankly it's a really huge jump from

I appreciate your thoughts on that Jon, but your wrong about Backman.
Backman would never blow up the franchise, with or without the help of
the media. Backman is exactly, IMO, the manager the Mets need. But I
agree that they first need to get the GM in line and let him hire who he
wants...but I hope he wants Backman.
